That should work great, actually. [And very clever. ;-) ]

Nope, it should all work smoothly, at least until you try to
authenticate. At that point, im-user2 will be asking you to
authenticate im-user1 (since that's who the IM client thinks it's
talking to). But of course, since you're controlling the MITM channel,
you could just authenticate Secondlife-Avy1 instead. Or something like

Will do. Just let us know when it's ready for prime time.
